About this coffee


Coffee Story

A loyal customer of our original Berkeley store, retired army officer Key Dickason brought the idea for our most beloved blend to Mr. Peet in 1969. Intrigued, our founder worked with the local gourmand and coffee aficionado to refine it. They sampled countless combinations before arriving at what is now our all-time bestseller. The result was so good, Alfred Peet decided naming it after his friend wasn't enough — Dickason's rich, complex blend also deserved a promotion from sergeant to major.

Major Dickason's combines the best origin coffees from the world's premier growing regions, each imparting its distinctive regional characteristics while still effortlessly rounding into a smooth, balanced cup. Over the years, it has become the coffee that epitomizes Peet's: flavorful, deeply roasted, and unsurpassingly satisfying. But for us, Major D's is just like a relationship with an old friend. We'll always remember it as the story of a customer's passion, an expert's palate, and a shared love of coffee.

Brewing Tips

Brew it in a French press for a perfect cup, or enjoy it as an exquisite espresso.

I am 75 years old and have been drinking coffee for 55 of those years. I learned to drink it black in the Navy and still prefer it that way today. I started drinking Peet's Major Dickason's Blend in 2001 and have enjoyed a couple of cups every morning since. Keep up the good work. We live on the California coast about 90 miles south of the Oregon border. I wish we had a coffee shop nearby so I could pop in and grab a latte once in a while.

Definitely the best coffee in the market, I have tried many others and no one has the full flavor without the bitter, and peet's does. I become a loyal suscription customer ever since.

  • Aaron Cortez , drinking Peet's since n/a 3/16/16

So I've tried a lot of coffee. Been a loyal starbucks customer for years. I usually get the Cafe Americano because its their strongest drink. I was at work one day and i went into the break room to make some coffee, usually theres some form of k-cup coffee, Dunkin Donuts or the Bob Marley Coffee, someone bought the Peets Major Dickasons Blend K-Cups. I thought I'd give it a try. Holy Shitaki Mushrooms! this coffee woke me up and kept me going more than the Cafe Americano ever did. And to mention the Americano is an espresso drink and the Dickason blend is coffee. Bravo Peets, i have been hooked on this blend now.

Bought on sale. Never looked back.

Saw Peet's at Staples of all places. Didn't know about it but bought and am I happy with it. Wonderful full flavor. Best I have ever "brewed"!

If there's one thing I miss about living in San Diego it's being able to pop around the corner to Peets for a fix. Major Dickason's is an absolutely perfect blend. It's very full bodied, not at all bitter, has complex flavor, and is absolutely delicious. If Peets ever decides to open a shop here in the deep, rural Appalachian mountains I'll be the first in line. Until then I'm grateful every time my freshly roasted online subscription order arrives.

For years, I had been trying to find the perfect coffee. A coffee that is rich and smooth. A coffee with a mild acidity but with a bright quality that I enjoy. And I finally did it! Major Dickason's is it! Whatever types of coffee are blended to make unique brew is what I have always been looking for! I love you Major D!

Major Dickason's Blend is like a perfectly orchestrated symphony. Five coffees, each with very different flavors on their own, combine for the smoothest cup with sneaky peaks of flavor! It's so easy and rewarding to drink!
